Region E North Bowling Orland Park

Bowling is perhaps the most popular sport in Illinois. Bowling competition is conducted using a traditional format. However for those of lower ability or with physical disabilities, bowling has been modified by utilizing a ramp on the approach.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate.

Athletes in Illinois who participate in bowling compete locally at Region Qualifying events.  Gold medal winners are then eligible to advance to the State Bowling Championships held in Peoria in December.

Fully vaccinated participants do not need to wear masks, but may choose to still do so.

Participants not fully vaccinated, but who are medically able should continue to wear a mask the majority of the time while at Special Olympics Illinois activities.  Special Olympics Illinois will not be providing masks.  Athletes and coaches must bring their own.

Please check with your Region staff on the status of parents and spectators attending competitions.  With a few exceptions, only registered athletes, coaches and partners are allowed at these events.  It is very important you relay to all parents and guardians the importance of only allowing registered persons into the event.

Special Olympics Illinois is committed to providing the best athlete, volunteer, coach and supporter environment possible.  While we are excited to resume in-person events, the health and well-being of our constituents remains our top priority.  All of our in person events follow the COVID-19 recommended IDPH and CDC guidelines.
